Pru Life UK receives back-to-back awards at the 20th annual International Business Awards.

Leading life insurer Pru Life UK clinched four Stevie® awards at the 20th annual International Business Awards held on 13 October in Rome, Italy.

Pru Life UK was awarded a Silver Stevie® in the Communications or PR Campaign of the Year - Diversity, Equity & Inclusion category for PRUHealth FamLove, a first-of-its-kind renewable plan that provides critical illness insurance coverage for up to 4 family members.

PRUHealth FamLove is a progressive and inclusive insurance product covering both traditional and modern families, including foster families, LGBTQIA+ couples, single parents, and common-law partners.

Pru Life UK was also bestowed two Bronze Stevie® awards in the Communications or PR Campaign of the Year - Climate Change and Internal Communications category.

We are grateful for every opportunity to show our PRU Love to our dear employees, our 40K-strong agency force, our 1.7M customers, and all our communities. With these awards, we are humbled and even more inspired to bless many more Filipinos, families, and communities and be their partners for every life, protectors for every future,” says Eng Teng Wong, Pru Life UK President and Chief Executive Officer.

At the core of its work on Communicating Insurance Protection as a Climate Adaptation Measure is the pioneering study which revealed that no disease group is immune to the effects of climate change and warned that cases of certain diseases will increase due to global warming.

This made a strong case for financial security to be recognized as a climate adaptation measure. The result of the study was released to the public through a media briefing, followed by a three-part webisode with industry experts.

Meanwhile, its 2022 Byaheng PRU Employee Engagement Campaign was recognized for excellence in internal communications. A project of its Employee Welfare Committee, it has been instrumental in fostering collaboration among employees from various divisions and empowering over 900 full-time employees to lead their company-wide initiatives for growth and success.

The International Business Awards is a prestigious awards program that honors achievements in the workplace. The 2023 competition has attracted over 3,700 nominations from various organizations in more than 60 countries.

Last July, the Insurance Asia Awards, one of the industry’s most prestigious programs, named Pru Life UK as the International Life Insurer of the Year - Philippines for the third consecutive year.

These awards come on the heels of Pru Life UK securing the top spot in the latest industry performance report by the Insurance Commission based on New Business Annual Premium Equivalent (NBAPE) in the second quarter of 2023.

PCPPI, GMA Kapuso Foundation Promote Better Eye Health.

In celebration and commemoration of Sight Saving Month, Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines, Inc. (PCPPI) and GMA Kapuso Foundation have teamed up to promote better eye health. 

Along with other private sector volunteers, PCPPI supports GMA Kapuso Foundation’s Kapuso 20/20 Eye Project last August 2023 (Sight Saving Month). Optometrists performed free eye check-ups among beneficiaries of the two medical missions held in Sampaloc Elementary School in Quezon Province and at the GMA Network Studio in Quezon City, Metro Manila. Volunteers and beneficiaries received Premier Purified Water as complimentary beverages during the event. Through this initiative, more Filipinos had better access to proper eye care and treatment.

Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines, Inc. (PCPPI) recently partnered with GMA Kapuso Foundation (GMA KF) for the Kapuso 20/20 Eye Project last August to mark Sight Saving Month. PCPPI donated 2,000 bottles Premier Purified Water, which were distributed during the two medical missions held at the Sampaloc Elementary School in Quezon Province and GMA Network Studio in Quezon City. The medical missions included free eye check-up and a short seminar, which benefited more than 200 participants. There were also 48 students from Sampaloc Elementary School who received prescription glasses during the event.

The program aims at promoting eye health and care, in light of increased gadget and technology use, which affects one’s vision. Gracing the events were GMA KF Ambassador and Special Adviser Mel Tiangco and GMA KF Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer Ms. Rikki Escudero-Catibog.

Premier Purified Water is PCPPI’s trusted water brand. With its clean taste and standard quality, it is a good drink for hydrating the body especially when engaged in several activities. It is available in 350 ml, 500 ml, and 1L (PET) in stores nationwide.
